    I am happy Va Bene has come to Corinth PV. I thought the food was good and look forward to trying some other entrees. I got the pasta with shrimp. It was really good but maybe a bit on the salty side. More pasta with the same amount of sauce would remedy that. Husband got the meatball sandwich and it was delicious.

    We sat in the bar area and had exceptional service, food was amazing! The meatball appetizers (3) to an order was one of the best I’ve had in Kansas City, I had the linguine dish and subbed out the shrimp for chicken due to allergies, the restaurant was accommodating with menu changes. Portions are good size and prices are appropriate.

    First visit to Va Bene and our group of 4 sat on the patio. We had delightful evening! Enjoyed happy hour drinks/apps and then I ordered Linguine Gamberi for my entrée. All very good and we will return soon. Also, our server was very, very attentive and very personable!

    The menu seems to have changed since there last and different from web site menu Good but more limited non-pasta choices. Our guests seemed to enjoy so all okay. Service a bit less than fully attentive. Ordered anti pasta appetizer tray which was quite nice but entrees were brought too soon by another wait staff. Long wait for coffee to be brewed after dinner. Desserts nice. Definitely will return but will try other restaurants first. Quite busy on weekday evening so others may have more favorable impression.

    It was hard to enjoy the food because the noise level was so loud. Pizza was crispy and not chewy with good flavor. Meatballs were solid and a little tough. Lasagna was crispy on top - not a fan. Sauce was average. Salads are large and fresh.

    The food is fantastic. I always order the cacio y pepe which has been renamed on the menu but happily is still available. We were there for our anniversary recently and the service was fantastic! We even received complimentary desserts and were offered complimentary champagne upon our arrival! The only negative was the noise level…it was excruciating. We were unable to carry on a conversation at all. Had it been a bit warmer we would have opted for the patio.

    What can I say? The experience here is always great and we look forward to the next time we come here. My wife had the orrichette and I had the grilled cheese. I had the lobster bisque….fantastic. Also the arancini was to die for. You must try this place; you won’t be sorry. Also there was is 1/2 price on some wines on Wednesdays. Don’t miss this one!

    I had a miserable time at Va Bene. Both reasons were something they possibly could not control. It was over 90 degrees and windy. No AC. It was broken. I hated the open window with high hot winds blowing on me. I never sit on a patio. I should have left, but we were with another couple. I had a reservation. I wish they had called me. The one dish I wanted to eat was off the menu bc it was seasonal. I was disappointed. The pot roast was good but the other dish was exceptional. Our waiter worked VERY hard to make us happy.

    Very hard to talk over the noise level combined with background..but loud..music. The food was excellent, delivered quickly, We had to ask for bread and never got oil or butter. We’ll try again, maybe outside,

    Great food, exceptional service and half price bottles of wine on Wednesday! Toasted ravioli, lobster bisque, spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, great bread/oil service, tiramisu, chocolate torte, raspberry sorbet, and cannoli all were excellent. We'll be back!

    I did not think the food was very good - the service was fine. Our waitress was very helpful and very courteous and kind. It was very noisy and hard to visit. I am gluten free and they did offer gluten free items. However my gf pizza was very bland and the crust was not done. I will not go back nor will I recommend it to anyone.

    We enjoyed our lunch yesterday at Va Bene. We had been meaning to stop back since the days of Urban Table but either could not get a reservation or schedules did not permit. The food was very good, the service excellent and we were very pleased. The choice of music was not our style but the luncheon crowd was a younger group. I would recommend it as a good lunch option and we plan to try it for dinner soon. This is a nice addition to the Corinth dining scene.

    Probably won’t be back. My wife had the beet salad and added Salmon, this was the highlight, this dish was very good. Cinnamon roll was very dense and served cold, pancakes were not cooked through and I ordered the pappardelle pasta, pasta was very chewy, suspect they do not make their own pasta, sauce was mediocre and the meat did not seem as if it was actually cooked in the sauce. Overall for $100 for brunch for four I think there are plenty of better options out there.

    Yummy Brunch We had planned to eat on the patio but it was way too windy. Hostess accommodated our request to dine inside. The special house blend of coffee is very good. Brunch menu is not as extensive as some might like but had a decent variety. The lemon ricotta pancakes were divine - a little rich but very savory and I couldn't finish all of it. My husband had the eggs with breakfast potatoes, brioche toast and peppered bacon. The bacon was nice and crisp (just like the potatoes) and not greasy at all. It even came with grilled tomato half and artichoke. We got there right when they opened. Time to get our food was longer than I expected. Interior atmosphere is pretty plain and devoid of style but clean. Will return and try them for lunch or dinner. I have my eye on a couple of the salads that sound really good!
